I can hardly believe it is time for a new challenge on Pixie Snippets blog - yet another week has whizzed by while I wasn't looking!! My snippets this week are a slight departure from my usual work because they are quilling strips. This came about because a member of our craft group expressed an interest in quilling and while I am no expert, I do know the basics so agreed to show her how to get started. We are a small group where it is all about sharing our knowledge and expertise - a great way of introducing people to different crafts. I feel that quilling is something which can develop with practice once the basics are learnt and then it is a case of using the various shapes to build up a wide variety of designs.
As we are rapidly approaching the festive Season I thought I'd make up a little robin for her to try and here he is incorporated into my card for Snippets this week. The background paper is from Craftwork Cards but all the other pieces are from my snippets boxes.
Background - Craftwork Cards paper pad
Circles - Spellbinder dies
Square layer - scrap of card embossed with Tim Holtz music embossing folder
Greeting - stamp from Stampin' Up on X-cut die cut tag
